Joe Root’s impressive performance in the ongoing Ashes has seen him score a total of 412 runs, which includes one century and two fifties. During the fifth and final Test against Australia at The Oval, Root’s quickfire 92 in the second innings, in a partnership with Jonny Bairstow, helped England amass 389 runs and take a commanding lead of 377 runs.
Root’s outstanding display with the bat on Saturday also marked a historic milestone as he equaled batting legend Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most 300+ runs in a Test series. This remarkable feat now puts Root in the elite company of players who have achieved this milestone 19 times, along with Sachin Tendulkar.
In this series, Root has surpassed other greats like Rahul Dravid and Brian Lara, both of whom have accomplished the feat 18 times. With such an outstanding performance, Root is poised to tour India for a five-match Test series, and he will be eager to surpass Tendulkar’s record and create new records of his own.
His consistent form and ability to score big runs have undoubtedly made him a vital asset for the England team. With the upcoming India tour on the horizon, Root will look to maintain his rich vein of form and continue his impressive run with the bat.
His 412 runs in the Ashes series so far demonstrate his prowess as one of the world’s finest batsmen, and cricket fans are eagerly anticipating more exceptional performances from him in the future.
Root has once again cemented his place among the all-time greats of the game. His performances in recent years have been nothing short of phenomenal, and he is sure to go down in history as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.
As England’s captain, he has led by example, inspiring his team to new heights and setting new benchmarks for future generations to follow.
